    Fellow commanders of the great Jade Dragon I am looking at purchasing another box or two of Yaokong remotes as I find some of my lists require more than two of these little guys. I am trying to avoid buying more of the current models if there is a good chance they will be re-released with new sculpt soon.

    I noticed a number of the other factions are getting remote resculpts, however, from what I can tell the Yaokong legs and bodies match the quality and styling of other factions' new remotes (Aleph/Haqqislam).

    Anyone know when the Yaokong box was originally released or have any info on the potential of a re-sculpt in the next year?

    It's hard to say with them. Haqq had a lot of complaints due to the breaking Legs, Combined didn't fit they style they wanted to do. I'm not sure why Aleph got new ones. I like the old ones. They didn't come out with new ones for Nomads/Tunguska so i'm thinking that if they do, it will be maybe the end of next year.

    There are no current plans to resculpt the Yaokong. Confirmed by CB.

    Lame. I was holding out for a resculpt. The new REMs go together like a dream.

    Yaokongs go back to N1 iirc. Certainly they were a thing when N2 had just come out at least (and that's where I got into the game).
    Just like the other basic rems for PanO and nomads (Haqq chickenbots have been redone as have the combine tentacle bots), Aleph's were N2HS and have been redone as well.

    Anyone know a good place to source distinct HMG, LMG and assault rifles for remotes? I feel this means I must fix up my REM fleet with guns that look better than cylinders

    They are already taxing themselves with all the new stuff they are coming out with. Re-sculpts are pretty rare at this point.

    Kinda surprising that CB isn't going to resculpt the old REMs when their molds wear out.

    I think it was @Dragonstriker who made some really good husongs using the loose 2E HMGs that come with the Guifeng.

    As a Yu Jing player, one should always be careful about wishing for resculpts before buying something. First time I ever did that was when I was waiting on a better Ko Dali model. Last time I did it was when I was waiting on Keisotsu resculpts. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Just be careful what you wish for!

    New Haqq REMs maybe? Though it would be pricey.

    Heh, yeah. I was kind of hoping for something along the lines of €5 for a 3-pack of useable guns.

    Might be able to fix something up with Kromlech's Legionary guns and a lot of cutting, that's what I've found so far.

    That's a very good one, too bad it's going to cost $20 just to get it into the country :(

    https://www.shapeways.com Has lots of interesting 3D printed guns people have printed for 40k and Gundum/Mech models. I've been eyeing a few myself for a bit more threatening HMG on my Yaokongs.

    I actually just went for cinematic effects for my Tachikomas (which are all the exact same model but need to be visibly different for gameplay). Armorcast makes a whole pile of different cinematic effects, different sized muzzle flashes, flame spurts, etc.

    I used big muzzle blasts for the HMGs, little muzzle blasts for the rifles, added a missile flying downrange for the SML, and used a small wire coming from the other arm for the repeaterbot.
